Book Trailer Video Production
Why Book Trailers?
Book Trailers are an effective way to promote your book online. Ausin Production Company Expressions in Video can help you create a dynamic and thought provoking book trailer to help improve sales of your publication. Unlike a movie trailer, which rely on reusing already created images, a book trailer utilizes and inspires new images and graphic treatments that help convey what your book is all about.
Why not leverage the same marketing power Blockbuster films get from movie trailers?
Tips to Make A Stellar Book Trailer
Tell a Story
There are several key elements that make stellar book trailers, but the most important is to tell a story. A good book trailer should identify your protagonist. Likewise, the trailer should identify the key conflict of your story. And, finally, book trailers should identify the goals of your main character.
Keep the Emotion
Look for the emotional pull of the story and bring all of that emotion to the book trailer. People are drawn to the emotional roller coaster of a good story. They love to be scared, awed, enthralled and thrilled. Your book trailer should find the right emotional chord that represents your story.
Grab Them with Music
An engaging book trailer requires the proper mix of music to set the mood and tone of the piece. The right music can make or break your piece. Make sure to invest some time selecting the music that reflects your message and story.
Get to the Point
Don’t bog down the viewer with too many details. Give them the overview of the story, the characters and move on. Keep it short and to the point.
Leave Them Wanting More
Don’t answer every question that your book raises. Leave the viewer with just enough of a tease to want to know more. They should be intrigued to buy your book to get the full story.
Have a Call to Action
Wrap up your trailer by telling the viewer where they can find your book. Is it available on Amazon? Is it available on iBooks? Let the potential reader know how to contact you or find your website.
